Truck drivers on bicycles: insights from the first year of vulnerable road user training for heavy vehicle drivers
Submission Date: 2019
Sharing Roads Safely is a driver training course focused improving safe interactions between heavy vehicle drivers and vulnerable roads. Based on the best practice program from the United Kingdom (CLOCS), Sharing Roads Safely was adapted for the Australian context by the Amy Gillett Foundation in collaboration with Rail Projects Victoria and in consultation with stakeholders from across the construction and logistics sector. Piloted in September 2018, the program is now being conducted regularly (industry rostered days off) and includes three modules (online, facilitated workshop, walking and cycling (on-road)). This paper details the content of the course and feedback from drivers and insights from the first year of course delivery.
